    Canadian Museum For Human Rights

    by PeterVancouver Updated Feb 17, 2012

    A short walk from Winnipeg Railway Station.

    The 310 million dollar building at The Forks in Winnipeg, has now been delayed partly due to cost overruns and its opening scheduled for 2012, has now been put back to 2014

    There has been a lot of controversy about the building, initially from archeologists who have found invaluable remains of items from thousands of years ago belonging to Native Indians amoungst the foundations of the building, right through to even the amount of space to be allocated to the Holocaust.

    Clearly at this time, this is a controversial building

    For a small city, Winnipeg is home to a surprisingly diverse number of stage and theatre venues. We have the internationally recognised Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. We are home to Prairie Theatre centre, Manitoba Theatre Centre, The Warehouse, Rainbow Stage (set in an outdoor geodesic dome).

    The WSO

    The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra is a fine bunch of musicians, but is currently trying to scrape it's way out of a financial hole. Hopefully, they will still be around if you decide to come to Winnipeg. The WSO plays at the Centennial Concert Hall.

    The Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra are both world class. In the summer there are tons of festivals-my favorites being the Fringe festival and Taste of Manitoba.
    The Fringe festival allows you to see a years worth of theatre in a week, some of it quite good, especially the comedy. Taste of Manitoba features many restaurants in a huge park setting where you can sample menu items from all different local restaurants.

    The MCO

    The Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of Roy Goodman, is another excellent group of musicians. They play at Westminster Church, so bring a cushion if you don't like sitting on pews!
